so sale price=100%-40%=60% 48=60% one easy way is to manipulate the numbers 20 times 5=100 so we will get 60 to 20 then muleitply remember ot do the same thing to both sides 48=60% divide both sides by 3 16=20% multiply both sides by 5 80=100% the origonal price=$80

The original price is: 100%-40%=60% (60/100) * x = 48 x = 48 / 0.6 x = 80
